Elementary and middle schools in Osaka, Japan are distributing free Nintendo DS consoles among students to aid learning.

The Osaka Board of Education made the devices mandatory in January, with software such as Brain Age and My Japanese Coach being put to practical use in classrooms.

Critics of the scheme have expressed their anger at taxpayers' money ending up in Nintendo's pockets, and the potential for students to abuse the scheme.

Around ten schools in the region have opted in to the programme, but it remains to be seen whether it will be adopted on a wider scale across the Far East.

this sort of thing would never happen here, they cant even afford to cook school dinners at most schools now, they have them brought in.
they used to do cooking lessons when i was at school, now they wonder why kids cant cook, some schools are THINKING of bringing it back in.
